We focus a lot on the neagative stories coming out of our schools, but we are firm believers that the Worcester Public Schools are filled with the next great leaders of the 21st century. Every year the WPS sends kids to great schools all over the country and they go on to do great things – like invent the Valentine’s Day card and the yellow smiley face.
So I guess tonight there was an award’s ceremony at Worcester Tech. I only know this because our Worcester State intern was emailed a video of a really bad ass kid who just became one of the most legendary turtle riders EVER by rocking his “I Am Turtleboy” shirt while walking across the stage and accepting his award:
See, this is the kind of kid who rides the turtle. We don’t have the gang bangers, delinquents, and pregnant 15 year olds. Those are Old Balls and Clive’s people. We got honor students. We got winners. Spanky McFarlane stands with the savages and the 20 year old sophomores who were just about to turn their lives arund. Turtleboy stands with the future leaders of America. Oh yea, and his name is Sam Houston. You pretty much bleed red, white, and blue if you’re named Sam Houston. We tip our hat to you tonight Sam Houston. Ride that turtle kid.
P.S. How bad do we wish Sam Houston was graduating last year and wore this shirt when he shook hands with Obama? #missedopportunities
Double P.S. If you do stuff like this you’ll probably be featured in a blog too.
